To encounter a true master is worth lifetimes of studying their teachings.

“To encounter a true master is worth lifetimes of studying their teachings.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

It is said that the true master is the one who can teach without words.  It means that their very presence is the teaching.  Presence is holistic experience.  It arises out of consistent balance because wholeness is proportional to balance in the relative field that governs all experience.  It is the high-amplitude power of unified consciousness.

 

Stand Your Ground

Florida is back in the news. When a Tampa Bay Times’ recent review of 200 Stand Your Ground cases revealed “an uneven application” and “shocking outcomes,” a state lawmaker filed an amendment to limit the media’s access to case information, presumably because too much disclosure would not bode well for defendants.

Pilgrimage to the Place of the Wise

“Pilgrimage to the place of the wise is to find escape from the flame of separateness.”
--Jalaludin Rumi

Most of you are familiar with Rumi, a great mystical poet.  In the above quotation, which is a good example of his holistic verse, “the wise” does not refer to those who are intelligent in matters of the mind, nor does it refer to those who conceptually understand the mechanics of consciousness and human experience. “Pilgrimage to the place of the wise” is based on the experience of the principle of balance.

Big changes are coming at Asia Pulp and Paper, a company some complain has done legendary damage to the world’s tropical forests. Because of stubborn customers and conservation groups, APP is promising official changes to policy that will result in a significant reduction in deforestation throughout Indonesia. The company has also vowed to cooperate with local communities on new tree plantation development.

Who Are You Beyond Your Mind?

In other words, apart from the known and the unknown, what else is there?
Harold Pinter

From the limited perspective of the mental dimension, there is nothing more than the known and the unknown and the mind is experienced as the alpha and the omega of reality.  From a holistic perspective, however, there is much more beyond the mind.

The Right Brain Shift of our Visual world

Written by Master Charles Cannon

blog-4-18-2014

Have you noticed that the world around you is becoming increasingly visually oriented in terms of the evolution of technology and how that is affecting your brain function?  

In these times in which we live, we are seeing an interesting shift emerging from auditory (words, languages, their meanings and definitions) to visual (images). This visual perspective signals a more balanced emphasis because of its focus on the spaciousness of creation.   This visual emphasis also informs us that a shift is occurring from the left brain to the right brain. 

No Sex

It’s the big night and big sex is guaranteed, right? Wedding night, that is.
Well, turns out, not so much. A recent poll revealed that at least 25% of newly weds don’t actually have sex on their wedding night and “experts” estimate the real number could be much higher. Why no sex? Too drunk and too tired head the list of excuses.

Are You Full of Yourself?

Written by Master Charles Cannon

“There is no room for god in those who are full of themselves.”
--Hasidic saying    

“God” is a funny word, which is becoming increasingly funny in these modern times in which we live.  Whatever “God” is for you, whether consciousness or some personification of your mind, it makes no difference.  “God” is really just a word that points to the experience of true reality, and this quotation says that there is no room for the experience of true reality (of blissful consciousness) in those who are full of themselves.

 

Good Deeds Pay Off

You may have read the recent story about a Massachusetts teenager who was fired from 7-Eleven because she gave a cup of coffee to a homeless man. Apparently she was hired within days by a homeless-services organization.
Good for her. Good for the news services that published her story. And good for the organization that hired her. What a demonstration of cause and effect, ironic, justice.

 

Grumpiness

Written by Master Charles Cannon

Most people are grumpy in the morning.  Does that include you?  If it does, the first step in dealing with it is to accept it and try to understand it.  For most people the only meditation experience that they have is their sleep time.  If you look at sleep time in terms of the five-fold cycle of the brain and human consciousness, you have peak experience and evolution in your consciousness followed by illumination, processing and integration.
